    kooks followed closely by QTP, then everything else, pacesetters are inexpensive and fit decently. pacesetters are the best bang for the buck...you can get coated with ORY for 500

    mitch,
    check out the LGMotorsports. if you have a c-5 their the bad-ass of
    headers. a little spendy but its only money. it takes cubic dollars to
    run fast

    I was looking at lg motorsports headers awhile ago but as you said best they are expensive. I would rather have the best bang for the buck.

    wasting money =

    Pacesetters, make sure you get coated. they are the same design as hooker but cheaper.

    I just installed my LT coated Pacesetters on July 4th and the Install was as easy as can be took me and my friend who are no mechanics less than 6hours to do they fit and look great and its a mod you can feel. Byunspeed has them with the pace ORY for $500 free shipping Id go with the Pacesetters if price is an issue.

    just installed some coated EDELBROCKS and their y pipe..nice fitting and great finish...had a welder look at them and he gave them 8-9 out of 10. O yeah...very thick flanges..supposed to be 3/8"..but we measured and they are almost 1/2" thick...about 7/16th"

    pacesetters have thick flanges and good welds.
    i have them on my car.
    if you want to spend double the money to have the bling bling stainless, then get qtp.
    i rather spend the money elsewhere.

    After looking at Stainless Works stainless steel longtube headers, nothing can compare the quality on these headers, top of the line welds bar none. It's a bit expensive though.

    I've got the Supermaxx system here as well and love the whole setup. By myself it only took me a little more than 4 hours to install it all. Quality is top notch. No clearence issues and no banging on the floor board. Comes with everything you need from the headers to the y-pipe, high flow cats, gaskets, band clamps, and header bolts for $1295. You can't go wrong.

    Kooks get my first vote, with QTPs coming in a close second.
